Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Goodbye Earl  Dixie Chicks

[C]Mary Anne and Wanda were the [F]best of friends
[C]All through thier high school [G]days
[C]Both members of the [F]4H club
Both [C]active in the [G]FF[C]A
[C]After graduation Mary [F]Anne went out l[C]ookin'
for a bright new [G]world
[C]Wanda looked all [F]around this town
And [C]all she [G]found was [C]Earl
[C]Well it wasn't two weeks
After s[F]he got married that
[C]Wanda started gettin' [G]abused
She put on [C]dark glasses and [F]long sleeved blouses
And [C]make up to [G]cover a [C]bruise
[C]Well she finally got the nerve to [F]file for divorce
[C]She let the law take it from [G]there
But [C]Earl walked right through that re[F]straining order
And [C]put her in inte[G]nsive ca[C]re
Right[Am] away Mary Anne flew [G]in from Atlanta
On a [F]red eye midnight [C]flight
She held [Am]Wanda's hand as they
[G]Worked out a plan
And it [F]didn't take 'em long to d[G]ecide
That Earl had to [C]die [F]   [C/E]
Good[G]bye [F]Earl
Those black-eyed [C]peas [F]    [C/E]
They tasted all right to [G]me E[F]arl
You're feelin' [C]weak   [F]    [C/E]
Why don't you [G]lay down
And [F]sleep Earl
Ain't it [C]dark[F]    [C]
Wrapped up in that [G]tarp [F]Earl [C]   [F]    [C]   [F]
[C]The cops came by to [F]bring Earl in
[C]They searched the house
High and [G]low
Then they [C]tipped thier hats
And said "[F]thank you ladies if you [C]hear from him [G]let us [C]know"
[C]Well the weeks went by and
[F]Spring turned to Summer
[C]And Summer faded into [G]Fall
And it [C]turns out he was a [F]missing person
Who [C]nobody mi[G]ssed at all
So the [Am]girls bought some land
And a [G]roadside stand
[F]Out on Highway [C]109
They sell [Am]Tennessee ham
And [G]strawberry jam
And they [F]don't
Lose any sleep at [G]night 'cause
Earl had to [C]die[F]    [C]
Goo[G]dbye [F]Earl
We need a [C]break
[F]Let's go [C]out to the lak[G]e Ea[F]rl
We'll pack a [C]lun[F]ch [C]
And stuff you in the [G]trunk [F]Earl
Well is that all [C]right[F]     [C]
Good Let's go for a [G]ride    [F]
[C]Earl [F]Hey   [C]     [G]      [F]        [C]
